You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. I am seeing a blank white panel, which floats above the main window. n both IE and Chrome

    Fix the current messed up code for my Yahoo Groups page. I am seeing a large white/blank panel which stays on top of the Groups pages...

    Also the text in the upper left (where my various Groups are listed) is concatenated... the text is jammed together. The menu items at the top edge are also concatenated.

    The Groups page suddenly has a white box smack in the middle of it, I cannot format my email properly. I have tried on both a Mac and PC using Firefox, updated version. There is also what looks like mobile text links across the top and scrambled on the edge of page.

  4. Feedback regarding Pin board ( consolidated)

    Original title:

    Not implemented: "Turn the Pinboard on or off"

    I have had access to the moderator features for the pinboard for some time. Please *do not merge this again with my suggestion to roll out this functionality to moderators*.

    You have not delivered on the following promise that I quote from your own help documentation:

    https://help.yahoo.com/kb/groups/SLN24712.html?impressions=true
    -------
    Turn the Pinboard on or off

    You can completely disable the Pinboard via the Access Control page, by choosing to turn the Pinboard off.

  5. Yahoo Groups is not working properly today and should be fixed.

    Today I visited Yahoo Groups to check my group and the Yahoo Groups layout was completely messed up and was not working properly. I cannot attach a snip of this problem to feedback; how can I send a snip of this problem to Yahoo? Is the Yahoo Groups server failing? Yahoo Groups worked properly, then polls became inaccessible, and now Yahoo Groups will not even load properly. I will naturally need to use a Google+ community instead of a Yahoo Group if this problem remains or worsens.

  6. Fix your page!

    This morning, my Yahoo groups is impaired by a Yahoo popup that is stuck in the loading mode before it loads the little x to get rid of it.

    You people have really made a mess of Yahoo groups. Everyone tells you that, but you keep getting worse.

  8. Please give moderators and owners access to the pinboard functionality

    We need this as soon as possible so that we can evaluate the functionality and develop moderation policies for our group's pinboard.

    Some of us are finding that members have access to this functionality, but we don't. For example, I cannot create pin to messages and photos. I am sure you can appreciate that this is not a good situation for moderators to be in.

    Thank you!

  9. Fix what is broken today.

    Fix what is broken today. Normally, I can at least read the posts on the groups but today I can't even do that. It is covered by all sorts of other stuff over the top of the group information. I have tried 2 separate browers and they both exhibit the same problem.

  12. Message formating

    What? Did you forget the basic concept of word processing? Stop deleting the paragraph breaks in messages typed in the portal window! It makes reading anything longer than two sentences impossible to read. It used to happen only in mobile versions, now it's the desktop and it shouldn't happen in either.

  16. "Join group" isn't working today - Purple error bar "Sorry, an error occurred.." happening

    Hi! We are getting multiple reports today of people unable to join our groups. They get the standard purple bar error message "Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content" after they enter the secret code. Can you look in to this. Is it system wide? Please fix. Can't get people on the groups if we can't get that to work! Thank you!

  17. My Groups

    It would be so much easier and less time consuming if you went back to the pages you had before. I have alot of groups and scrolling through them is very time consuming. Having pages you can go to your groups easier and in a more timely fashion. Please go back to the pages view with all the information that was listed on them.
    Thank you.

    We are looking into this request to increase number of groups loaded initially in the ‘All my Groups’ page.

  18. Why do replies go to Group Owner?

    Why has the way emails from group members are now displayed with the name of the member and their email address but when you hover over that, it's showing the group email? It's totally confusing and not good! Can you change it back to the way it was?

    Offensive images are appearing in our groups, and our members did not put them there. I contacted Yahoo about Abuse and was told the Owner can fix this problem. The owner cannot fix this... it appears to be a yahoo problem and it is spreading from group to group. Please fix this.
